PROVO, Utah (AP) -- A new economic report says Utah County's job growth has been very strong in the past year.
Utah County saw nearly six-thousand new nonagricultural jobs -- an increase of three-point-six percent -- from October 2004 to October 2005. That's according to a report produced for Commerce C-R-G, Utah's largest commercial real estate firm.
Statewide, the report shows every sector in Utah's economy had an increase in employment during the one-year-period, which is the first time in more than five years.
The report also shows the construction sector had the greatest increase with 12-point-six-percent. Which accounts for 97-hundred new jobs statewide. More than 50 percent of those jobs are located in Salt Lake and Utah counties.
